    They will readily available on BST, when early adopters quickly realize they don’t have a prayer of hitting them well.

    Power spec available?




    Since they're a one-piece forging, I imagine you can bend the **** out of them.



    "Power Spec" is simply bending them forward to the limit of reasonability. YMMV.




    So, on the power spec and retro loft, they don’t have a different cast to keep the bounce the same as standard spec?




    Nope. It’s simply bent strong or weak. Bounce moves accordingly. Not really ground breaking. Lol.

    I'm pumped. Hopefully I can give them a whirl when I am in Phoenix in a few weeks.



    What are folks going to do for the long irons? I think 5 is the lowest I'll go as blade format... But need to replace the 4 with something. I wish ping had some more forged options as players cavity backs. I bet these will feel great, even compared to some of the Japanese forgings.

    I was thinking about that. I'm not sure if I'm going to go 4-P in Blueprint, 3 iBlade. Or go 3-P in Blueprint and keep the i500 3 in the bag...

    I'm pretty certain Ping will get it right in terms of feel since these are pretty much a true MB blade. I'm a firm believer that having that solid mass centered directly behind the sweetspot (true MB blades) is what provides the coveted soft feel, not so much the manufacturing process of forged v. cast or even the metal used, regardless of what the marketers would like us to believe.



    Why do you think even Mizuno, the forged standard for OEMs, puts vibration dampening materials behind the sweetspot of their thin faced perimeter weighted offerings (900 forged, etc). If the forging process and the 1020 carbon steel by itself were the reason for soft feel this really wouldnt be necessary, no?



    Anyway, I digress. The Blueprints are pretty much true MBs save for the toe ****. My guess is they'll feel great.

    According to a Japanese golf shop owner I knew when I lived in Japan, if these are 8620 forging they won’t be well received in Asia. Definite material snobs..

    Isn't that what we're all banking on so we can pick them up at a discount after they've been lightly used for 1 range session...

    I'm keeping the 4-iron i500. You'll want the option to blast that on occasion. I know I do. There are those spots 200+ where only an iron will do, and I'd rather have the pop.

    BST will be your friend when it comes to Blueprints. Ping will introduce these first knowing darn well these same players will end up with iBade 2.0’s or God forbid i210’s. Just the nature of a muscleback. Last I checked Ping hasn’t made its hay selling forgings. BB

    Are we taking about the same BST? This forum is NOT the place to make money on equipment. Maybe the first one or two sets that show up for novelty sake but after that no chance.

    Not if it's a wide release. If it were a "2 per rep" kind of thing, that's different.

    Will be interesting to hear their take on “forging” Forged ansers and Forged Glides are not forgings in the strict sense of the term. All 8620 material. Mizuno MP 18 & S 18 Wedges are 1025 forgings that start with a billet not with a cast head..hit it a few times with a die and call it a forging..They were honest on the wedges saying they were Forged 8620, let’s see what the Blueprints are. Conversely a lot of people like the feel of the Glide 2.0 Stealth wedges better that are cast 8620 (like many OEMs)



    The first 2 sets of irons Ping sold were the only true forgings to date In 1959 Karsten ordered heads from the best forging house in the U.S. ...Golfcraft (later Titleist) called Ping 68 and 69. He milled out the MB to increase perimeter weighting (and probably the first Forged CB). Less than 200 sets were made.. today a single iron from those sets collectors will pay $700 for..
